Easter Baskets

Hi!  I crocheted these Easter baskets after Christmas when I was tired of making Christmas gifts and needed a break from stamping.  The pattern number is L0136AD from Lion Brand Yarn.  They are only about 6 inches wide so a cute little basket for little kids.

I also crocheted an amigurumi bunny to go in the basket.  ETA:  Sorry, forgot to add that the pattern for the bunny is also from Lion Brand Yarns (60480).  Amigurumi are small and seem quick to make but for me it takes a while cause they are so small.  You crochet all the little body parts separately and then sew them together.  Sometimes I'm not that patient.  So this bunny took me several days.  I'm contemplating making another one cause there are 2 little girls we give Easter baskets too and I can't give one a bunny and not the other.

The ears are large and floppy and I sewed beads on for eyes but maybe that makes him look kind of scary.  I'm looking for safety eyes to use for little projects like this but haven't found any here so maybe I'll have to search online.  I already have requests by my kids to make an alligator and a hippo and a penguin.  Geez, it never ends. 

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

This is soo adorable! I just bought a amigurumi knit book from costco yesterday and hope to make something from it rather than use it as a picture book.

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
